Teatro Merida

I thought I'd share some pictures of a theater I came across while taking a lunchtime stroll through the centro district of Merida.

This art deco number was built in the 1920's and like in so many other cities (notably Miami), slated for demolition until the locals convinced the government to save it. After restoration, it has been used as a performing arts center.

Check out this ticket booth.

...and these doors into the theater.

To the upper balcony.

Ceiling lights in the lobby.

We haven't seen the inside yet, but hope to someday when it's not so hectic around here.
